Colt? Well then there's no Loctite but it is staked.

Okay, since I'm new to ARs, what can I do to put my magpul single point sling attachment on my rifle?

As has been said, since it's a colt it's staked.

This is what a Staked castle nut looks like.

Take a look at this... and there are other solutions where you don't remove the castle nut.

Take a look at the single point qd sling attachments made by tactical link.

Can't say there, don't know what DPMS does but wouldn't be surprised if they use Loctite. The solution in the video I posted would work for you too. He does mention he was installing on a milspec tube like the Colt. If they have both sizes you'd want commercial. The castle nut itself is the same size but you do have to be able to slide over the tube.

Called the local gunsmith who does work for my roommates AR. He said he might have to use a Dremel on the staked parts, he also said to just Loctite it back when done, no need to re-stake it. Any comments in this?
